Examining the role and impact of various unions and entities of the former Soviet space aiming at the reinforcement of multilateral economic cooperation, the author observes the existence of objective limitations to possibilities for significant growth in economic integration.

Spector) demonstrate the most decisive effect of particular states’ policies in this sector.
